Now that you have the option of BSP and STU next year, it'll be somewhat competitive in either if you squeeze out every allowable mod and you're a good driver. I'm leaning towards STU b/c then you just run your aggressive street tires since rcomps aren't allowed.
I don't think it'll be nationally competitive in either but we'll see. I just plan on having fun and becoming a better driver. I can't afford all the mods that will make it even slightly competitive (i.e. best tires for class, race seats, lightweight exhaust to name a few of the expensive items that I haven't done). I think the worst class for it is A stock against S2000's, STI's and EVO's to name a few.
